5.0 out of 5 stars Make Your Models Come To Life! Oct. 3 2001
Finally,a diorama book that doesn't focus on battle scenes (but those guys can learn a LOT with this book).
Instead, Ken shows how to spice up your automotive subjects, from simple display base scenes to complete, contained scenes.
Rust, mud, grime, and slime. Beaten, dented, worn out, used and abused. Ken shows you how.
Also, there is plenty about texturing, photo-reducing and sign-making, as well as an excellent primer on figure posing and painting.
This is a book that has been long overdue for model car builders, but as I said, anyone who works with scale models of any sort will find this to be a gold mine.

Simply put, Hamilton's book will make you into a better builder . . . it is a treasure trove of useful information, tips, techniques, and tricks . . . plus the writer has a great sense of humor and the fun he has building and sharing how to build better comes through on every page. Great photographs too. Get yourself a copy, but also get copies for your builder friends--they will really appreciate it and never forget you for having done so.
